A beautiful wooden church with a beautiful altar, worth visiting and seeing

The present state is a very well-kept church from the 19th century, but the beginnings date back to the 13th century. Around the church there is a cemetery where there are burials from the post-war period to the 1980s of the 20th century

The church is mentioned already in 1417. In the following century, the object was taken over by Protestants. The current temple dates from the eighteenth century. The construction of this wooden church was completed in 1711. The interior is decorated with neo-baroque polychrome from the nineteenth century in the form of ornamental and floristic stripes. The Baroque main altar dates from the 18th century. Stations of the cross in the folk style are from the nineteenth century. The surroundings around the church are well cared for, it is worth coming and seeing.

Roman Walls of Lugo

Roman Walls of Lugo are an exceptional architectural, archaeological and constructive legacy of Roman engineering, dating from the 3rd and 4th centuries AD. The Walls are built of internal and external stone facings of slate with some granite, with a core filling of a conglomerate of slate slabs and worked stone pieces from Roman buildings, interlocked with lime mortar.

Their total length of 2117 m in the shape of an oblong rectangle occupies an area of 1.68 ha. Their height varies between 8 and 10 m, with a width of 4.2 m, reaching 7 m in some specific points. The walls still contain 85 external towers, 10 gates (five of which are original and five that were opened in modern times), four staircases and two ramps providing access to the walkway along the top of the walls, one of which is internal and the other external. Each tower contained access stairs leading from the intervallum to the wall walk of town wall, of which a total of 21 have been discovered to date.

The defences of Lugo are the most complete and best preserved example of Roman military architecture in the Western Roman Empire.

Despite the renovation work carried out, the walls conserve their original layout and the construction features associated with their defensive purpose, with walls, battlements, towers, fortifications, both modern and original gates and stairways, and a moat.

Since they were built, the walls have defined the layout and growth of the city, which was declared a Historical-Artistic Ensemble in 1973, forming a part of it and becoming an emblematic structure that can be freely accessed to walk along. The local inhabitants and visitors alike have used them as an area for enjoyment and as a part of urban life for centuries.

The fortifications were added to UNESCO"s World Heritage List in late 2000 and are a popular tourist attraction.
